(to the tune of "Oh, Holy Night - with apologies to the devout)
The puppy sleeps
to wake him is to suffer...
He naps at last
now the humans have peace
Long did he play
and long the house did rumble
with cries of "NO!
please take that from his mouth"
Our bleary eyes
pause to survey the damage
the carnage that was once a peaceful scene
Down on your knees
and clean up all the messes
Remove all the stains
you have time - before he stirs
Oh Unholy night!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!
(from me and mine)
